Wind turbine technology

Loads analysis for new wind turbine products

Wind power is one of the fastest growing sectors of the world’s electrical power industries. This course offers an unbiased insight into the modern wind turbine's design process, techniques, disciplines and tools.

Wind power is one of the fastest growing sectors of the world's electrical power industries. This course offers an unbiased insight into the modern wind turbines's design process, techniques, disciplines and tools. Once the basics of wind turbines' architecture definition will have been explained, we will focus on the design process of machines in the context of wind farm operations.

The trainers will guide you through the basics of wind energy conversion and the evolution of the design process behind today's giant wind turbines. The modules will highlight the importance of accurate design loads prediction and effective control, alongside their effect on wind turbines' mechanical design. We will illustrate how design options affects the cost of energy and review future technology trends.

Knowledge and understanding of wind turbine design is becoming more important, every day, when looking at the operational context. The second part of the training will therefore offer an overview of the methods to gauge machine selection and suitability, together with upgrade options like lifetime extension and controller re-fit.

The course offers a significant depth of understanding of the technology background, but does not assume any prior knowledge of wind energy.

Who should attend?
Industry professionals wishing to broaden their knowledge; individuals or companies involved in wind farm or turbine development and operation; and professionals of any discipline entering the industry and seeking specific skills, such as: Project Managers, Developers, Civil and Structural Designers, Turbine Designers and Investors.

Our online training offer 
The training is divided into five sessions of 3-4 hours that you will be able to stream anytime, and at your own pace. As you view the recorded classes, start a discussion by posting your comments on the Wind Turbine Technology training group on Microsoft Teams. You are encouraged to participate actively by replying to other posts, and we will join the conversation too. You will have time to complete the course until the Q&A event the following week, where you can discuss the topics of your interest with us, ask questions and connect with other participants.

We had a very good experience in accessing the valuable training resources that you have provided. The training has provided our engineers an overall outlook to the wind industry, from wind technology, turbine design, certification and lifetime extension, to asset management, future tech trend, etc.”
Mr Jun Wang,
  • Goldwind
Highly satisfied by the content and organisation of this DNV GL training course. Would recommend it to colleagues.”
Jip van Erp,
  • DEME Group
Very deep technical expertise.”
Eric Weemaels,
  • Foresight Group
Forward looking context- particular grid integration – was useful.”
Tom Harries,
  • Bloomberg New Energy Finance
I improved my overall understanding of Wind Turbine Technology with training lessons. The speakers demonstrated experience on the topics and that facilitated the learning process. The remote training was not a problem at all, I had a very good experience."
Gabriel Freitas Santos,
  • Brookfield Renewable Energy Group
The course touched on each and every aspect of wind technology. The trainers are very knowledgeable and engaged. Highly recommended.”
